Young people have also held ice over salt on their skin until it burned or poured rubbing alcohol all over themselves and set themselves on fire.

Teenagers in the United States are eating detergent and sharing videos on social media platforms. Videos of teenagers spitting up, coughing or vomiting have gone viral and although YouTube is trying to remove these videos, it's impossible to hide these videos from teenagers because there are always people who repost viral videos they've downloaded.

The co-owner of Vinnie's Pizzeria, an artist known for using the cuisine as his canvas, said he cooked up the idea because he'd rather people stuff their faces with his non-toxic look-alike than put a potentially life-threatening substance near their mouths.

It's not certain how the fad got started. And at least they won't poison you. At some point, the pods became alluring to older children. The Onion, a satirical online news website, published a story in 2015 titled, "So Help Me God, I'm Going To Eat One Of Those Multicolored Detergent Pods".

As with almost any substance, Aleguas said, "the dose makes the poison". Here, Tide laundry detergent is seen on a store shelf on March 13, 2012 in Miami, Florida.

The company hired National Football League star Rob Gronkowski to film a clip that will call on teenagers to stop eating Tide Pods.

Maybe it's time to make these pods look about as appetising as poison, because if you aren't using them to clean your clothes that is what they are. Some teens shake, stir, or even cook them.
